I used to think ‘wish lists’ on blogs were cheesy. Then I though, cheesy-shmeezy, I’m a poor-ish student with many wants, particularly in the book department, and theres nothing wrong with getting presents. So, I’ve made an Amazon wishlist. And, I’ve added the link to the left side of your screen.
It’s funny how the list shows my tranparency as to what my interests/favorites lately have been: examining the neverending racialist games played in this country, Dinesh D’Souza (who, by the way, is debating at an event in NYC on October 14th), Hanif Kureishi (an incredible British writer who has the unfortunate experience of having several of his phenomonel books turned into some of the worst films I’ve ever seen), experiencing one of those crazy travel urges that will take me on 5 trips in the next few months (Ohio, Prague, L.A, Vancouver and either Russia or Italy by December), rereading all the Granta magazines I have and wishing I had others and fiending some new music (such as the new Spiritualized or BMRC).
So, don’t be shy, purchase away!
